When I suggested 'A further rule that captured pieces get replaced...' I subconsciously assumed a jumping capture as in Draughts or Jumping Chess (under Large variants, but with Knights capturing as in my comment there). A much simpler way of bringing in Aces would be to allow promotion on reaching a different player's first rank from that last visited by the piece. The former would give a Shogi-like game, the latter something closer to standard Chess with an endgame of few pieces.
